Nuttx is a real-time embedded operating system (RTOS). It has a small footprint that is usable in micro-controller environments. It is fully scalable from tiny (8-bit) to moderate embedded (32-bit) systems. It also aims to be fully compliant to standards, to be fully real time, and to be totally open.
Release Notes: This release adds several new core OS features including address environments (aka "Processes"), support for a PATH variable, and a native Windows build. In addition, platform support support is now available for the the ZiLOG z180 (via the P112), STM32 F100 high density boards, and additional ARM board support. Several additional features and important bugfixes are included.
NXWidgets is a graphical user interface package for the NuttX RTOS. It integrates seamlessly with the NuttX NX graphics subsystem in order to provide graphic objects, or "widgets". It is written entirely in C++ using only selected "embedded friendly" C++ constructs which are fully supported under NuttX. No additional C++ support libraries are required. It is tailored for use with MCUs in embedded applications. It is ideally suited for the mid-to-upper range of most MCU families. It will work on high-end frame buffer devices as well as on LCDs connected via serial or parallel ports to a small MCU. It will accept position and selection inputs from a mouse or a touchscreen. It will also support character input from a keyboard such as a USB keyboard. It supports a special widget called CKeypad which provides keyboard input via an on-screen keypad which can be operated via a mouse or touchscreen inputs. Some of the graphic objects supported by NXWidgets include labels, buttons, text boxes, button arrays, check boxes, cycle buttons, images, sliders, scrollable list boxes, and progress bars.
Release Notes: This release includes enhancements and optimizations from product-related developments. This includes such things as options to eliminate the minimize buttons and background images. A new CNumericEdit widget is included, as well as a revised and improved Timer object. Several additional features are included, plus some important bugfixes.

Release Notes: Many performance improvement were made on Calendar autocomplete, on mobile email search, and on the core architecture. A nasty Firefox crash caused by rounducbe on email sending has been fixed. Fixes were made on ICS import and VCard import from Webmail. A sync range of one year has been set to allow very big calendars in browser storage.
GLB is a user-space TCP load balancer similar to Pen. It lacks most advanced Pen features, as the aim was to make a user-space TCP proxy that is as fast as possible. It can utilize multiple CPU cores. A list of destinations can be adjusted in runtime. Destination "draining" is supported. It supports "least connected", "round-robin", "random", and "source tracking" balancing policies.
Release Notes: This release fixes division by 0 from the 0.9.0 beta. The main highlight is the introduction of libglb.so, which can add balancing capability to any Linux application by overloading the libc connect() call in runtime, providing direct connections from client to server. No application recompilation or relinking is needed. This release adds a "round-robin" balancing policy.
quIRC is a lightweight console-mode IRC client. It uses terminal escape sequences to provide a clean character-cell based interface, handling things like multiple channels and servers (using tabs), input line editing (with bash-like keystrokes), and backscroll.
Release Notes: This is primarily a bugfix release. UTF-8 glitches in the input bar have been fixed, and cursors and backspace now handle UTF-8 correctly. A double-free crash (Bug #18) has been fixed. Some documentation has been updated. The Makefile has been partially cleaned up.
Novius OS is a CMS that takes up the challenge of managing Web content in today’s multi-channel environment. Its goal is to provide users with one single tool for their digital communication: Web sites, social networks, mobile applications, email, and custom business applications.

Release Notes: In this release you can use multiple matching conditions for a single query field. It adds "$addToSet" (add value to the array only if its not in the array already) and "$pull"(removes all occurrences of value from array) atomic operations. There are an initial version of a command line console for EJDB databases. All database API methods are blocking without callbacks.
fpgatools is a toolchain for programming flexible programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). The only supported chip at this time is the xc6slx9, a cheap (circa $10 U.S.) but powerful 45nm-generation chip with about 2400 LUTs, block ram, and multiply-accumulate devices. The principles of fpgatools are to reach the maximum physical performance of the chip, to provide fast development cycles, to be an independent toolchain which only depends on other Free Software, and to be a lightweight C implementation without a GUI.

Red language is a native-code compiled functional, imperative, symbolic, and homoiconic programming language that re-uses most of REBOL's syntax and semantics. Both static and JIT compilation support are planned. A strong emphasis is made on concurrency and both task and data parallelism support using an actor-like abstraction and parallel collections (Scala-like). The target range of usage spreads from low-level system programming (thanks to the built-in Red/System C-level DSL) and embedded systems, up to high-level scripting, with an optional REPL console.
Release Notes: This new version adds support for functions, many new datatypes (function!, paren!, path!, lit-path!, get-path!, set-path!), and many new native functions like FIND and SELECT. The path support addition enables refinements for both native and user functions. The environment loaded by the boot script has been extended with dozens of new mezzanine functions (like PROBE, LAST, FIRST, SECOND, etc.). The Quick-Test framework has now been ported to Red and around 1800 new unit tests were added.
